elevator: they have one, it’s called a HOME

Coming back from buying some 1$ candy bars that the badging office employee lightly extorted me into so doing, I got on the elevator with an older, but not really that old, woman. She pressed a button for a floor (2) and gasped, “Oh I didn’t mean that floor.” She pressed another (3), and said, “Wait, what building am I in?” As she finally found the floor she wanted (G), she said, “They really should have painted these buildings differently. At least we’d have something to help us old folks out.”

I just smiled while she got out on the ground floor, one floor up from where we were and 10 feet away from the stairs. And while I rode-stopped-rode-stopped-rode to my floor (5), I thought the above and grinned an evil grin. A little mean, perhaps, but it never ceases to amaze me the number of people that seem to forget on a regular basis how an elevator is meant to work. Perhaps they will be the first people that I have killed once my evil empire takes hold. *wrings hands menacingly* 😈

* It should be noted that our building is built as a set of twins, the West Building and the East Building. Since you have to walk a little distance either above- or underground to go between them, it is perhaps only confusing to most people for all of a day.

    Aw, that is kind of cute though. As long as she was suitably embarrassed. I get annoyed even when people hit the right floor, but it means an extra stop for me.

    Patience? Virtue? What?

    Everytime I step onto an Elevator, I wait until everyone else has selected their floors. Then I take note, if my floor is either above, or below a number that has been selected. I will ride the elevator and get off on that floor and take the stairs to my floor.

    I dont like when people press multiple floors when I am in the elevator so I dont do it to them.
